There is no Junior curling on Tuesday, Feb 21, 2012 as the Duluth Schools are not in session. Juniors may come in and practice. We will have 4 sheets available for junior curlers. League curlers should take advantage of the 4 open sheets to complete flex or make up games. Please advise the office as they are open on a first come, first served basis.
Sonja Bauman, Anna Bauman, Elizabeth Busche and Skip Cory Christensen roared back from an early 7 – 3 deficit by scoring 2 in the 8th end, stealing 2 in the ninth end to tie and stealing 2 again in a dramatic tenth end to win the 2012 US Junior National Championships. Next they are off to Oestersund, Sweden for the World Junior Championships, Saturday Mar 3, 2012 through Sunday Mar 11, 2012. Watch the website for welcome home details and fundraising events for the team. Congratulations Ladies!
The Christensen rink is currently 4-1 after 3 days of competition!
Good luck to the Duluth teams traveling to Hibbing this weekend to compete in the Minnesota Club Championships. The O’Leary rink will play in the women’s division and the Sormunen, Kraus, and George rinks will be playing in the men’s. Good curling! Read more about it at Minnesota Curling.
Two Duluth Men’s Teams won events at the 2012 Two Harbors International January 20-22nd. Team Shuster won the A event and Team Kraus won the C event. Congratulations gentlemen!
Don’t forget to schedule your flex games. All flex games must be played by the last week in February. As we get closer to the end of February, it will become more difficult to find sheets available for your game. Schedule a sheet now with Dick in the office!
Volunteers needed this weekend for the Bert Payne Spiel and the hockey games (both nights). Talk to Dick in the office or Nancy Odden if you can help!
